BLT SALAD BOWLS
More and more people are watching the carb intake or wanting to up their intake of vegetable carbs. This version of an old classic is delicious and can be made ahead of time and keeps for 3-4 days in the refrigerator. Just add the olive oil and avocado right before serving. To make this vegan, you can use smokey tempeh slices instead of bacon and omit the egg. Serve with quinoa if you’d like to add some texture or some healthy carbs.
4 slices Organic Bacon
4 cupsA rugula
1 cup Cherry Tomatoes (halved)
1/2 Avocado (sliced)
2 tbsps Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Sea Salt & Black Pepper (to taste)
- Hard boil your eggs by placing them in a small pot and fill with enough cold water to cover them by 1-inch. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Once boiling, cover the pot and remove it from the heat. Let stand for 12 minutes then drain. Place eggs in a bowl of ice-cold water for 10 minutes.
- While the eggs are cooling, cook bacon in a pan over medium heat until crispy. Remove from pan and pat excess oil away with paper towel. Once cool, chop it up.
- To assemble the salads: divide arugula between bowls and top with cherry tomatoes, avocado, chopped bacon and hard-boiled egg. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper, to taste. Enjoy!
